Notably Ornate

Oh Dear! Please excuse the nasty angle!! I cased this off a tag which is in the catalogue and added it to a card front. I used used the So Swilry wheel to tart up the card a bit. The colours used are Baja Breeze, Early Expresso and Confetti Cream...super quick to make but it still looks ok, it would be a good card to make in a workshop

Fancy a Cool Drink??

I have done versions of this card before but they are so much fun it's ok to do an encore I reckon. The cup is made from vellum this sturdy!. I have stamped the lemon from Tart and Tangy and cut some of them into segments...I used 2 way glue to glue just the rinds of the segments and attached them to the reverse side of the gives the appearance they are floating in the drink My class girls love making these!. and now I feel like a cool drink...laters!

A Little Treat (with Fox and Friends!)

I took advantage of one of Stampin' Ups! great specials and bought this cute little set called A Little glad I did. I have stamped the hot air balloon basket and used the 1 3/4 circle punch to make the balloon. I then masked the basket and stamped the giraffe from Fox and  Friends and on a scrap I stamped the monkey, then cut him out and hung him from the balloon ropes. I have used Pacific Point for the card base and added some Pumpkin Pie designer paper and an Old Olive scallop of all I think this could be classed as a boys card...I rarely do them  so that's a bonus!

I have a dreadful habit of using my newest stamps and neglecting my older sets...So I have vowed to go to the bottom of the stacks!! This is the Cheers To You set which is a great one for watercolouring..I also added some Dazzling Diamonds for a bit of bling..I also used retro Remix wheel which I think I have used only once before...don't know why it's a great stamp!

Medallion Stamp and Dasher

This card didn't turn out exactly as planned..I was originaly going to cut a hole in the front and stamp Dasher behind the hole...after two botched attempts I gave up and stamped Dasher on a circle and stuck it in the middle of the medallion. The sentiment is from Heard From the Heart. I used Bravo Burgundy on Confetti White cardstock which looks kinda good I reckon for a quick and simple card

Because I Care

Still can't believe this is a level one hostess very pretty!
For this one I stamped the image then stamped the flower head again on a scrap and coloured it using Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizazz which I adhered over the top of the original  image using dimensionals I also rolled Music Notes across the bottom and added some Pear Pizazz ribbon..this also looked nice in just plain black and white.
Humour me for my proud nanny moment..
Two of my beautiful grand daughters Ella and Emily just before we set off for the Bunnings Christmas Family Fun Night...who knew you could have so much fun at a hardware shop!!
